Best practices before, during and after Walnut Harvest.
More than 99% of the walnuts in U.S. are grown in the fertile soils of California's Central Valley. And this is made possible by the efforts of the 4000 or so family farms that have been growing walnuts of the highest quality for over a century.
Research conducted by the University of California indicates that molasses is a powerful walnut husk fly feeding stimulant.
